Star Wars fans have been waiting for months to get a look at the next chapter in the main saga. After months of teasing and giving the press a tease of footage, the wait is finally over. The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here. The trailer was unveiled in front of the crowd at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. You can check it out below.
What did you think of the trailer? Sound off in the comment section.
The Last Jedi will pick up directly where The Force Awakens left off. The film will dig deeper into the new characters introduced in Episode VII as it explores Kylo Ren’s humanity as well as how Rey deals with the discovery of the force inside her. FN-2187 himself, John Boyega, has said that director Rian Johnson has managed to craft a Star Wars film that has an “indie movie” feel.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis. Newly introduced to the saga are newcomers Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.
The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
‘Star Wars’: Just Who Could Be ‘The Last Jedi’?
Last month, Disney and Lucasfilm officially announced the title for the next “Skywalker Saga” Star Wars film. Episode VIII will be titled The Last Jedi. As soon as the announcement came, fans were both excited, and very interested. That’s a “cool” title, yet at the same time very vague. Even stars of the film, Mark Hamil and Daisy Ridley have been tight-lipped about what that could mean. The only response has been Hamil saying that it has a very “samurai” and “minimalist” vibe to it. Ridley only shared a meme on Facebook related to the announcement of the title.
So what does it mean? One theory is that for the new films, the titles will literally spell out a sentence summarizing the trilogy, which is interesting. The first film The Force Awakens, the next one The Last Jedi, the third…. so it could say that “The Force Awakens The Last Jedi (insert Episode 9 title).”
But we are curious as to who the last Jedi in Episode VIII could be. Of course, there are obvious answers, since the field of Jedi in the new trilogy is so limited. It’s not like the prequel trilogy where there were hundreds if not thousands of Jedi to pick and choose from.
So let’s take a look as see just who the Last Jedi could actually be. Click next to see who our choices are.
